Publisher's Summary

From whirlwind romance to gaslighting campaign: This is truth far stranger than fiction.

When Mary met Will Jordan online, she was a single mother who’d given up trying to find Mr. Right. And yet here he suddenly was: articulate and attractive, with a fascinating background. Soon they were in love, and when he proposed after a month, it seemed recklessly romantic.

Caught up in a whirlwind, Mary accepted that Will’s work often took him away from home, out of contact. She was his rock, supporting him emotionally when a misunderstanding led to criminal charges, and even selling everything when blackmailers threatened to kidnap their children. Together, they took on the world.

And then one day the phone rang, and a woman introduced herself as "the other Mrs. Jordan"....

In this raw account of deception on a grand scale, Mary Turner Thomson recounts what happened after she discovered every word he’d said, from the very first moment, was a lie. This is her painful, humiliating truth — but she tells it for one reason: She too was once a strong, independent woman who would have listened to all this and thought, "It could never happen to me...."

Revised edition: Previously published as The Bigamist: The True Story of a Husband's Ultimate Betrayal, this edition of The Bigamist includes editorial revisions.

Shocking and informative

This is one book that I struggled to put down. It's almost unbelievable in parts, and there is a tendency to feel very angry at the author for what seems like her absolute unwillingness to accept reality. But I've come to the conclusion that this man was a consummate professional in his chosen career...that of a serial liar, thief, bigamist and worse. None of us can judge this lady until we have walked in her shoes. I wish her well & thank her for her courage in telling her story. Highly recommended.

Dreary story by stupid author

I feel really quite angry after listening to this. The author is clearly troubled and this led her into an exploitative and abusive relationship but the level of credulity evinced in this tale is almost unbelievable. Time after time she ignores the giant elephant in the room and accepts the incredible explanations of her bigamous husbands disgusting deceit. I would be ashamed to have this published.
